The Chief Executive Officer of Enugu Rangers, Davidson Owumi has predicted that the team would bounce back stronger and better. He dreams of the mid 1970s when the club’s name caused jitters across Nigeria and in the continent.
At a time in the 1970s, the club went almost three seasons without losing a game. At the back stage of the 2018 Aiteo/NFF Awards Night at the Eko Hotel and Suites
Owumi regretted the exit of the ‘Flying Antelopes’ from the CAF Confederation Cup and attributed the poor outing to congested fixtures that eventually led to fatigue on the part of the players. He however, promised that the team would have a much larger and stronger squad that would be able to compete on all fronts and achieve desired results.
“We have learnt our lessons from our unfortunate and painful exit from the CAF Confederation Cup. Now, we’re set to make amends by fortifying our team in readiness to compete favourably and conquer on all fronts.
“I want to assure our fans that we’re determined to return to winning ways and of course, continental football,” remarked Owumi, fondly called Okada Air, in his playing days.
Enugu Rangers are currently placed third on the log of the NPFL Group A. The team got the ticket for the 2019 CAF Confederation Cup after a dramatic come-back from three first half goals in the game against Kano Pillars in Asaba.
